Zebo O. is a 52 year old dressmaker living in the city of Vahdat. She is married and has 5 children. She has been making an income tailoring dresses to order for 10 years. In addition, she owns a plot of land where she grows wheat and vegetables, most of which she ends up selling, but keeps some for herself. Because of this, her business provides her family with an additional source of income. It will soon be time to re-sow her plot, which is why it is essential for her to prepare the land. She has decided to take out a loan in order to buy seeds and fertilizer. In addition, it is essential for her to buy fuel for her to be able to plow the land. She will repay the loan within 12 months.
